Standing under the thatch
South Africa

This sphere was taken in the Woodlands Office Park in Woodmead, Johannesburg, South Africa. The office park is a combination of high end office real estate and nature reserve with several species of birds, antelope, and other small animals. The majority of the office buildings surround an open grassland type environment with a few scattered clusters of trees.

This is one of the many small open sided thatch huts that can be found throughout the park offering tenants a nice place to sit and relax during a hard day of work (or in my case a hard day of pretending to work).

I had to lower my tripod to about 2/3s of it's full hight to be able to shoot this one otherwise my camera would have been sticking into the thatch. The sphere is an HDR consisting of 5 exposure groups with +/- 1 between each group.

More About Africa

Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
